With 80% of our primary forests gone, we need to sequester atmospheric carbon as fast as we can. TreeSisters plant over a million trees a year and we're scaling up to a billion!

Join us for a short walk and discussion followed by tea and conversation inside the Wellesley College Club. We would love to introduce you to our mission and model. You can also hear how you can support the billion-tree planting project we are in the middle of!

After the event we will casually make our way to dinner if you would like to join us.

Forests play a vital role in the hydrological cycles of our world, sequester the atmospheric carbon dioxide that is driving climate change and provide the most biodiverse regions on earth. When trees are removed, vibrant ecosystems are often overfarmed, eroded and rendered infertile in a cascade effect that is mirrored with social decline, grinding poverty and climate extremes.

Reforestation can rapidly reverse these trends, stabilizing and nourishing the soils, restoring watersheds, revitalizing dry springs and providing good quality water to large populations living downstream.
